Thank you so much! It's interesting to see the live reactions, and how things work for the reader.


You're welcome, the game is really detailed and complex; since I haven't played something like this before.


I am amazed by this visual novel! This is so far away from anything I've ever seen! Soo good! I wish more visual novels would be as creative with the medium as this one! Really great!

Thank you so much! It's lovely to get a comment like this. <3
